Latinos want gov't to look into LA County voting
FILE - In this May 15, 2012, file photo, retired California Supreme Court Justice Cruz Reynoso, speaks at the Capitol in Sacramento, Calif. The Obama administration is aggressively pursuing lawsuits over minority voting rights in Texas and North Carolina, but the Justice Department has sat on evidence that the latest round of redistricting in Los Angeles County unfairly reduces the influence of Latino voters. "I support the Obama administration and the president, but frankly, Obama and the top people around him seem to be unaware on this issue. Obama is somewhat blind to the issues of Latinos," said Reynoso, who is also a member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. Reynoso said the administration seems more attuned to voting-rights complaints of African-Americans.(AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli, File)
